    enough!i'm out of ferrari ,bought a gallardo...

    ...i had enough! every week they say they will appoint the new agent this week ,and the order is still not processed ,this is the most unprofessional behaviour i have ever seen ,i have paid a deposit ,had a confirmed order with march 15 delivery ,waited,and today the order is still not processed ,crazy... so i made the move and bought the gallardo ,i never bought or driven a lambo before , to resume in one word: WOW! i was so damn impressed!the built quality is marvelous, engine sound is great, torque is crazy,and its so fast! with esp off you play with it like a RWD ,and while going seriously fast its 4WD is great! i am very happy with my choice ,i had the very pleasant feeling of getting much more than i expected,this gallardo is a great car, and on the top of it i got the best deal ever, here are some pics before i took delivery ,i will post more pics soon ,BTW its a manual.
    anybody knows the price of the glass engine cover??and where to buy it?

    Congratulations in the new G-car!!!

    I'm sorry to hear what happened with the ferrari 430........but may be is better keeping this car!!!! who knows!!!!.......BTW, manual gear and grey exterior, very nice combination, that car is a masterpiece, I'm sure you will love it.......congrats again!!!!!!!!!!!

    Nice decision!!!!!!

    Re: enough!i'm out of ferrari ,bought a gallardo...

    Congratulations on your new Gallardo Dhayek, what made you decide against the E-gear? I think that they had a much too lazy attitude, I guess they assumed you would wait forever.

    Re: enough!i'm out of ferrari ,bought a gallardo...

    Congrats Dimitri! Great choice! Manual version is IMO better then e-gear... I tried both versions and e-gear is not as good as Ferrari F1 gearbox. Is your 500hp or new 520hp(MY2006)? Any way you will enjoy it a lot...

    Re: enough!i'm out of ferrari ,bought a gallardo...

    I heard the Gallardo is a super car ... esp the 4WD,

    CONGRATS !!!

    Re: enough!i'm out of ferrari ,bought a gallardo...

    Hi Dimitri,
    It's a shame about the Ferrari. Two very different cars, who knows, maybe things will get sorted in the future with a new official dealer. But hey, that's italian management for you!
    Your car is superb though! has it got the new changes from 06 onwards?
    Enjoy it to the max!
    Will the car be based in Lebanon?
    Ciao.

    Factory price in Germany is Euro 3.500,-- without tax. Check out with a Lambo dealer, if you can switch yours against a glass enigne cover.

    Re: enough!i'm out of ferrari ,bought a gallardo...

    CONGRATS....

    Re: enough!i'm out of ferrari ,bought a gallardo...

    Good choice!!!

    Looking at the wheels it is not a MY2006, but with manual gearbox you will not be disappointed at all!!

    CONGRATULATIONS!!

    Re: enough!i'm out of ferrari ,bought a gallardo...

    thanks all! , the doesnt have the 06 mod , what are they exactly? except from the shorter ratio?.
    hi fanch ,yes this one will be based in lebanon.
    patriek ,indeed it is superb ,you should try one ,its crazy what audi has improved with this brand , lamborghini,bentley and range rover were 3 unreliable cars until the germans (audi,bmw,VW)gave their engeneering ,they became top quality products.
    vini,alex , i tried an egear car ,didnt enjoy it ,its not as perfect as the 430 f1 ,thats why i went to manual ,the gear change are very smooth ,i just loved the total manual gear experience.

    the dealer here told me it worth 12000euro as retrofit ,i am sure he is ripping me off ,if anybody can ask a dealer or else about the retrofit price it would be very helpful ,i will import it directly from wherever . thanks

    Re: enough!i'm out of ferrari ,bought a gallardo...

    Hey D.

    Nice car my Friend. I got the offecial order guide and price list for the Mid East. I can tell you for sure that engine glass cover cost way less than 12K. I'll get you the exact price.

    Re: enough!i'm out of ferrari ,bought a gallardo...

    Beautiful car and color !!!!!!!!

    Re: enough!i'm out of ferrari ,bought a gallardo...

    Congrats!! sweet car and a great move. Can't go wrong with German Engineering and Italian Design best of both world.

    Indeed a good friend of mine is fed up with F dealership and is at the verge of purchasing a Gallardo.

    Re: enough!i'm out of ferrari ,bought a gallardo...

    Congrats, the best looking car available these days and performance to match the looks

    Re: enough!i'm out of ferrari ,bought a gallardo...

    Hi Dimitri, congratulations.

    What about the 997 Turbo? No more?

    Re: enough!i'm out of ferrari ,bought a gallardo...

    Lovely car. Also, I can understand why you decided to walk away from Ferrari. Inexcusable as to what they did.

    I believe he's getting both.

    Re: enough!i'm out of ferrari ,bought a gallardo...

    Congrats Dimitri, great car!

    I'm sure you will enjoy it as much as you would the F430 and maybe things get fixed and you will be an owner of a Gallardo AND a F430 soon (and a 997tt ).
    Inacceptable what has happened to you.

    Keep us informed, if you still miss the F430 or if you no longer want that car from Maranello...

    Save driving, enjoy!

    Re: enough!i'm out of ferrari ,bought a gallardo...

    Nice car!! enjoy. I believe that the rear glass panel is very expensive ( around $5,000) here in the states.

    Re: enough!i'm out of ferrari ,bought a gallardo...

    wish you a happy ownership

    Re: enough!i'm out of ferrari ,bought a gallardo...

    CONGRATULATIONS!!~~~


    the perfect color, love the conservative interior



    ENJOY!!!

    Re: enough!i'm out of ferrari ,bought a gallardo...

    Beautiful More pics please when you get it out on the road....

    Re: enough!i'm out of ferrari ,bought a gallardo...

    Congratulation dhayek on your Gallardo.. You have made a very wise choice.. I was dinning with Lebanon's Porsche dealer the other day.. What we couldn't figure out is how could Ferrari cancel off their dealership in Lebanon without notifying customers who have orders pending with the outgoing agent..I guess knowing the whole marquee's attitude I'm the least surprised.

    Re: enough!i'm out of ferrari ,bought a gallardo...

    Dimitri excellent choice. Btw i think you can get a 3rd party glass engine cover for much cheaper. not sure where i saw it though.

    you know what, i have to blame you for influencing me into buying a lambo aswell. im going to be ordering a black/white with e-gear soon. im looking for a used one at the moment so i can perhaps cough cough "turbo charge it" so that it would cost the same as a new 06 but with more power.

    anyhow take care and drive safe

    Re: enough!i'm out of ferrari ,bought a gallardo...

    thanks all ,i appreciate. more pics and video coming soon ,just after i come back from finland , i am in the polar circle right now with porsche camp4 S arctic driving centre,its an amazing experience that i recomend to all of you . tommorow i will be looking for the 997 turbo ,i hope to find you something. caution ,spy at work.. as for the 430 ,i am too happy with the perfection of the gallardo to think about it , i forgot it.
    christian , i still have my order on the TT , dont know what will happen , you never know....
